Mike’s Porter Recipe
Posted on March 31, 2011 by mike
I know I’ve been focusing more on sharing first time homebrewing stories with everyone in hopes of inspiring those people that aren’t doing it yet to do it, and those of you that haven’t in a while to get to it!
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Beer Tools. For those of you unfamiliar with what Beer Tools is, it’s software that assists pro brewers and home brewers a like to design recipes. I haven’t dug to far into it, but I can tell you that any serious homebrewer needs to get this. It has a lot of features, recipes and information that can take your homebrewing recipes and organization up to the next level. Plus, its a modest $30, so well worth it in my opinion.
Sometime in the future, I’ll see if I can get a screen capture software and dig into it with you so you can see it. Until then, why don’t you just grab a free trial?
Anyway, so with this new tool I decided to finally take a stab at making my own brew recipe. Check out the video to see what’s up. I’ll post the recipe below.
Overall, I think it turned out decent. Many things could be better and one of them is getting myself some space to get a fermentation fridge. I can’t control my temperature in my space without it and I’m pretty sure it would take my taste up to a new level.
